i tryed using dvd2xb , but when i tryed playing the movie, there was just a bunch of files, none of which would really work. so my question is, how do you make a working backup of a dvd movie, without using a pc, or is it even possible? if its not possible to do this without a pc, how do you do it with a pc that doesnt have a dvd rom drive. someone please help me, i would really appreciate it, thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah my tutorials a little out of date now though.
I'm also having a problem sort of related to this question..
I'm looking at using the newest version of DVD2Xbox to copy and decrypt a movie DVD over a network using the new samba sharing capabilities of .54 as I don't have much space on my xbox hard drive, and of course no dvd in my pc. I'm kind of confused what samba is, is it a client run from the xbox or some software for the pc?? (or both?) Is there any guides anywhere on how to set up DVD2Xbox and Samba so I can copy my DVD movies straight to my PC?

you could do this, yeah its a pain, but hey what to you want: insert dvd into xbox copy files to a folder on pc via ftp use any dvd movie decrypter that supports dvd movie folders.. play your decrypted movie btw, i just use windows media player (updated) to play the .vob files and it plays just like a dvd movie in a dvd player.
im sort of a newbie on the whole dvd scene, so understand my innonence. hopefully you guys can suggest a better way, but i was just letting you know what works for me. (by the way i do have a dvd drive and just provided the info above for people without dvd drives in their pcs)

I have a similar problem... I dont always have access to the dvd movie i want to copy and my pc, so I use my xbox as storage. After I rip the movie to the HD with dvd2xbox I ftp the files over to my pc, but when I try to use Shrink DVD to make the movie small enough to burn on a DVDR it comes up with errors... like dvd2xbox isnt copying all the files off the disc. Anyone know whats up with this? or has tried it?
sorry i dont have any samba info for ya.. thats new to me. HDs are cheap now... its worth it to put one in your xbox. IMO.
